I *think* it's the one... BUT
Posted: Oct 5, 2009 2:38 AM

So, i've tried on probably 50 dresses in the past 6 months. Wedding is in one year (almost exactly.) I haven't found THE dress yet in person... about 3 months I was perusing http://www.florasdress.com as well as http://www.merbridal.com and found the ONLY dress that has made me actually say "oh my gosh, that's it!" HOWEVER these are both knockoff dress sites, and i just know that if i order it, i'll hate it! I'm not sure what to do... I've exhausted my resorces locally, mom and bridesmaids are fed up... I'm terrified to order this dress for fear that I'll get exactly what I pay for! (less than $200) even the $1,000 dresses i've tried on (for fun, mind you) haven't really made me say wow. It's exactly what I want in a dress... I just want to try it on first and see if it's worth more than the money....

opinions???

Can you post a picture? Maybe one of us will recognize the dress and be able to tell you the designer.

You might also check out this thread, where people have posted pictures and stories about their experience with knockoff sites.

Bottom line: you do get what you pay for, but if the dress you like is a simple design and you aren't expecting a $2000 dress for $200, you might find a bargain.

on a side note, itsn't it considered SPAM when a web site promoter relentlessly promotes on a message board? just wonderin

It looks great...and I love that the dress you love is in your budget! It would have been awful if the dress of your dreams was way out of the range you'd allowed.

Congrats!
